Turned away by an e-book?

Turned away by an ebook?

You may have noticed that some ebooks turn you away when you try to read them. This is because the library’s ebook suppliers don’t always supply ebooks with multiple-user licenses so there is a limit to how many people can read the ebook at once.  Fortunately many of the ebooks we buy are available with multiple-user licenses which means that more than one person can read the ebook simultaneously.


The Library Gateway Help pages provide more information about using ebooks from our different suppliers and answer FAQs such as “How much can I copy or print from an ebook?” and “How long can I use the ebook for?”
